Grilled Eggs in Sweet Peppers

Grilled Eggs in Sweet Peppers
Prep Time 7 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 32 minutes


  • 4 medium sweet peppers (any colour), about 3-1/2 to 4 inches (9 to 10 cm) tall, with stems
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded medium Cheddar cheese
  • 4 tsp (20 mL) chopped fresh parsley or cilantro


• Preheat the grill to medium heat (about 350°F/180°C).

• Cut 1/2 inch (1 cm) off the stem end of each pepper. Remove seeds from top slices and seeds and membranes from bottom portion of each pepper.

• For each pepper, whisk two eggs, 1 tbsp (15 mL) cheese and 1 tsp (5 mL) parsley. Pour mixture into pepper. Sprinkle 1 tbsp (15 mL) cheese over top. Place top back on pepper.

• Choose plump peppers with a square shape. They should sit level.


• Vary the type of cheese: try Swiss, Tex-Mex blend, feta or Parmesan.

• Add diced ham to the egg mixture.
